California is the most AI-obsessed state in the U.S., according to new data. In relation to the survey, it is also apparent that ‘ChatGPT’ is the most searched-for AI term in the U.S., with an average monthly search volume of more than seven million.   What can we make of these trends?

The study analysed national and regional online search data, including AI-related terms such as ‘Adobe AI’, to determine the states most interested in AI.

Artificial intelligence may have transformed the world with the birth of virtual assistants, fraud detection, neurolinguistic programming, and more. However, with the worldwide market predicted to reach almost $300,000 million by 2024, it will be interesting to see how artificial intelligence continues to evolve for consumers and businesses alike.
